Having suffered my worst IBS-D epiosdoes in 2001-2, (my uni years), I have found that generally I can live with what must be mild IBS. I can drink alcohol and am usually fine and eat unhealthy foods (sometimes).I have been on a health kick since the New Year started since I want to lose a stone and a half. I fell off the wagon on Saturday when I went to a Beefeater restaurant for my nephews birthday. I pigged out royally on a 3 course meal with a rack of ribs as my main. Think I packed away around 4000 calories. Naughty me but I didn't think of an IBS attack since I had been naughty over Xmas and had gotten away with it. Anyway, I ate all this between 6.30 and 9.00 on Saturday night.Sunday was fine - ate healthily to make up for my trangressions - 1 brown pitta for lunch with a Sainsbury's Be Good to Yourself houmous. and the same again for mid afternoon snack. For dinner 2 smoked mackerel fillets with a baguette.Anyway 4-5am on Monday morning, I awoke with that familiar and hated abdominal pain and what followed was one of the worst episodes Ive had in a few years. Repeated toilet visits and the stomach pain didn;t completely subside but became a dull ache. Also worryingly the last few visit were decidedly "red/pink" which prompted a visit to A&E to ensure nothing was amiss. They didn't seem to think so, so that's ok.Anyway, surely this attach must be linked to Saturday's banquet? How long does it take for food to get through the system? Is this just a colon thing - rushing food through at the end of the process?Must admit, although I feel better today, the noises Im mow hearing through my tummy from my left side are getting me worried Im about to have this over again!
